Day by day the new rate of brain tumor causes is diagnosed. To make use of technology, the standard of lifestyle for many patients was increased their survival rate. Medical imaging modalities were contributing more because the internal formation of the human brain is more complicated to diagnosis. In this field, various modalities are used to detect but the invention of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) gives more attention, especially to detect brain tumor. The proposed work is focused on segmenting the tumor region in the MR images. The Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT) is used to extract attributes from tumour images, which is then used with PCA to reduce the dimensionality of the attributes. Gray level co-occurrence method based different features are extracted in the MRI which is given as input to the classification learner such as ensemble, support vector machine, K-nearest neighbor, Naïve, and Fine Tree which are used to classify efficiently. The method is achieved 99% of accuracy according to that trained with 30 images and tested with 100 images. From that tumor images have been split up into benign or malignant. With this trouble-free method is used in MR images to give high accuracy.

| Introduction|| |
Tumor in the human body refers to unprecedented to growth of cells at any part. An occurrence of tumors in the human brain is referred as brain tumor. Brain tumor can be classified as primary and secondary tumors. While the former is benign and represents immature cancerous cells, the latter is malignant and represents matured cancerous cells. Malignant tumours are graded from I to IV. With Grade I refers to a smaller growth and Grades II and III representing larger cell sizes. Grade IV is a case, wherein cancerous cells begin to spread around the body.
Medical researchers have documented, that brain tumor along with other nervous system cancer causes death to mankind. Surveys show that brain tumors are rated as the tenth most prevalent disease. Brain tumor is much common for adults below 40 and for pediatrics. Surveys by loading Indian details, show that there has been a vital increase in the rate of cancer patients to 10% in the past 4 years. For a highly populated country like India, this vital increase would give fearful numbers in the years to come. In addition, cancer is the second leading causes of deaths in the United States (U. S), every year in the United States approximately 80000 people are diagnosed with brain tumor (both primary and secondary). In this, 32% are considered as malignant (or cancerous). The cause for brain and spinal cord tumor was diagnosed more in U. S. In recent days, various types of brain tumor detection methods have been identifying the tumor location, yet researchers still focus on developing novel approach for tumors identification and classification. The availability of technological advancement has kindled the authors to carry out diagnosis using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan. This work has focused on identifying abnormal growth of tumor in the human brain using MRI images.
Magnetic resonance imaging image
MRI is one among the approaches being used by medical practitioners for diagnosing soft tissues in the human body. When compared to other approaches, MRI imaging provides a directional imaging of the human body. Image analysis on MRI images is much easier when compared to other scanning approaches.
Discrete wavelet transform (DWT) decomposes a signal into a set of mutually orthogonal wavelets. It is built on sub-band coding. Moreover, the authors contributed more to extracting feature from MR images. For the past two decades, scientists have been utilizing machine learning algorithms for classifying images. To list out a few ensemble classifiers, logistic regression, support vector machine (SVM), k- nearest neighbor (k-nn), Naïve Bayes are widely used.
When the set of classification is called ensemble, it gives high accuracies to accomplish on various models, in this mainly bagged tree is used to get high accuracy compared to all other classification. Logistic regression can be categorized in nature. It is commonly used for binary output (0 or 1) classification. SVM is mainly used in classification purpose. The label trained based on the two groups of classification algorithm (ex: 0 or 1). k-NN is focused to calculate distance from different function. These measurements based on the nearby pixel in the tumor images. Bayes classifier algorithm helps to build quick prediction and it is very easy to predict the probability of the object.

| Dataset Description|| |
Experiments were conducted on brain MRI dataset. The dataset of brain MR images was resourced from Kaggle. In this study, we have termed these brain MRI images as BT dataset. [Figure 1] shows the sample dataset of BT images. This BT dataset comprises 253 images, out of which 155 images contain malignant tumors while remaining 98 images are with benign tumors.

| Proposed Method|| |
This study has proposed four steps to segment brain tumors using MRI images. The flow chart for the proposed system to detect tumors in MRI images is shown in [Figure 2].
As shown in the flow chart, the MRI image is initially preprocessed to remove the unwanted noise. Wiener filter minimizes the overall mean square error by the process of inverse filtering and noise smoothing is being used for the above-mentioned step. The preprocessed MRI images are then fed for segmentation. Otsu approach has been used to increase the contrast of the filtered image. DWT and Gray Level Co-occurrence Matrix (GLCM) have been utilized for extracting features from the segmented image. PCA is been applied to the extracted DWT features, such that vital features are extracted. These vital features are fed to the classification system.
This study has used ensemble tree, logistic regression, Naive Bayes, k-NN, and SVM classifiers. The confusion matrixes of each of the classifiers have been identified and the accuracy of the extracted features is computed.
The rest of section is structured as follows:
- Image preprocessing
- Segmentation using Otsu method
- Feature extraction using DWT
- Feature selection using PCA
- Image classifier.
Preprocessing includes removal of unnecessary noise, smoothening inner regions, and framing the edges. When the wiener filter is used to minimise undesirable noise in an MRI picture to estimate the desired noiseless signal performance. A statistical-based approach is present, i.e. when BT image is blurred by low pass filter. With help of inverse filtering can get back to the original image. This filter is based on additive noise with sensitive. However, this approach is causing degradation at a critical period when restoration approaches are being applied.
The techniques come up with optimal trade-off between reverse filter and noise smoothing filter. From this, it is used to eliminate the additive noise signal also blurs sequentially. Wiener filtering is foremost used to minimize the errors in the process of noise smoothing and inverse filtering. The linear evaluation of original image gets back in the Wiener filter. When the orthogonal theory implicit that filter system can be expressed as,
- Power spectra of the additive noise and the original image,
H(s1,s2)- Blurring filter.
When the Wiener filter is separated into two parts, one belongs to inverse filtering and another one belongs to noise smoothening. In this filter not only shows the high-pass filtering but also helps to remove noise in low-pass filtering during this execution process.
The proposed study has utilized different classifiers. Each of the classifiers has their own input layer with different sizes of input to be given. To reduce the computational complexity, the authors have fixed the size of the preprocessed image to 216 × 216.
From this process, it is important to resize the MRI images to eliminate the unwanted information and process only required information from the MRI images. With help of this preprocessing, the pixel strength of every input image is defined clearly for getting the enhanced results.
In brain tumor image, image segmentation is a big challenging process to segment the part of tumor. In this method, Otsu-based thresholding is concentred to segment the MRI brain tumor images. Otsu method is easy and effective for segmenting images.
Segmentation means dividing an image into several parts on basis of similarities or dissimilarities based on this property. This is done to extract useful information from segmented image. In the case of brain tumor, it segments the tumor part. Thus, it is an extremely tricky. The threshold-based techniques give rise to segment own pixels with indistinguishable intensities. It is handy approach for initiate boundaries in that tumor objects contain on contrasting backdrop, for complete binary algorithm is 0 or 1 (benign or malignant) in [Figure 3] shows segmented part of cluster and segmented image.
During this segmentation process, initially, the Otsu binary threshold method is used to convert the gray level image (Sushil Kumar et al.) and to measure the distance, Euclidean Metric is used. This clustering allows you to select clusters from three different cluster images. Cluster 1 is chosen in this case based on the segmented tumour area.
The feature extraction is used to extract the valid or essential information from the MRI images. There are different approaches were used to extract the feature from MRI. In this segmenting process, the extraction of tumor image is very important. In this study of tumor detection, the extraction is deal with Gray-Level Co-Occurrence Matrix (GLCM) features, DWT based brain tumor segmentation to reduce the complexity of the system and improve the performance.
It is the process of extracting valued information from the segmented tumor image (it may be size, shape, color, and texture).
In brain tumor images, the defined various features are extracted from MRI image. The segmented part of the tumor has different in nature based on the prototype of MRI image; from these entire images, it is captured and derived.
Due to the feature extraction and analysis, the dimensionality of the segmented image is given more clear and improved. Hence, the feature extractions of the dimensionality of MRI dataset have to be decreased for increasing the overall MRI brain tumor recognition process. For this purpose, in the future, the feature selection approach is going through to optimize the BT features.
Discrete wavelet transform
In general, the DWT was used to examine different level frequencies of various images using different variety of scales. DWT is more useful tool for extraction features from extraction. When the features are extracted from the coefficients, discrete wavelet is used to extract the brain tumor MRI images. In this classification, the importing wavelet-based localized frequency information is important, which is based on 2D DWT and so on.
DWT is an essential ride for extracting feature from tumor images since it allows investigation of images placed at numerous amount of resolution by cause of multiscale approximation property. MRI information is retrieved successfully with help of multiscale analytic. The 2D transform is feasible to decompose into four nonidentical resolutions of sub-bands such as low-low (LL), low-high (LH), high-low (HL), and high-high (HH) (both levels of frequencies in one and the other directions). By applying the DWT model, four sub-bands are framed based on the Region of Interest.
The sub-bands of DWT systems are classified into four ways that mentioned in above is described in detail manner that is,
[Figure 4]a describes normal and first-level decomposition, from that image easy to get back the level of composition and execution process of the 1DWT.
|Figure 4: (a) Shows input image with the 1st level decomposition, (b) 2nd level decomposition. (LH1, HH1, HL1-1st level, LH2, HH2, HL2-2nd level, LH3, HH3, HL3-3rd level decomposition)|

In the second and third-level decomposition shows [Figure 4]b, it deals with high-frequency part of the image those are represented as the LH2, HL2, HH2, LH3, HL3, and HH3 gives the detailed explanation of all directions such as horizontal, vertical, and diagonal part the MRI image. As of now know that LL1 denotes the approximation of MRI original image and it is processed for next level decomposition. This process is frequently repeated to get desired level of image resolution.
In this, the step is based on:
- First-order statistical analysis
- Second-order statistical analysis.
Extraction based on DWT + PCA based statistical features listed as,
From this step, the first-order statistical features were extracted based on the frequencies of gray level, and image intensities at different random level were extracted in the MRI images.
Standard deviation (S. D): the square root of difference is split by whole digit representative,
Mean of variance (V):it measures as first-order statistical feature value of variance calculated as,
Entropy (E): Used to measure the disarray or difficulty of image f (x, y), the entropy of image calculated as,
Skewness (Sk): with help of skewness can measure the probability distribution of asymmetry of real value,
Kurtosis (Ku): it is heavy-tailed data or light-tailed data based on the distribution of probabilities,
Inverse difference moment (IDM): To compute image homogeneity and local uniformity of an image, it detected between valued and nonvalued
Root mean square (RMS): It measures the predictable error of pixel strength and square root of arithmetic mean,
Smoothness (SM): it can be measured by number of values which are continuous in the image,
Contrast (Cont): it can be calculated as highest and lowest values of pixel intensities of the image,
Extraction based on gray level co-occurrence matrix
To extract the information, GLCM-based extraction is used. The likelihood of various levels at different frequencies are retrieved in the MRI picture in this second order feature extraction.
Energy (E): The amount of assessable pixel pairs of an image,
Homogeneity (H): Used to measure the nearness of elements in the distribution,
Correlation (C): is defined as contiguous feature of pixels depend on computations,
By these methods of feature extraction, the derived features are given for the classification model for training and testing, for efficient tumor detection in MRI scan images of the brain.
Feature selection by principal component analysis
The PCA is a conventional method; it focuses on linear data between high to low dimensional image subspace by least-square decomposition. To reduce the structure of the data, the dimensionality reduction method was used in the system with help of this system; it can reduce the size of the image as per out expectation. PCA is nearly new in exploratory statistical analysis for building predictive models. It is mainly focused on dimensionality reduction in the tumor dataset images. PCA is possible to reduce the size of a data extracted tumor be made up of a large quantity of interrelated adaptable variables while retain most of inequality contrast variations.
For example, PCA method trained as, when the number of useful information is retrained it based on the eigenvalue analysis for distinct criteria-based execution, eigenvalues are larger than one or less than one in this analysis procedure.
The logistic regression analysis is apt for testing hypotheses and describing the stages, it also well suited for relationship-based variables in categorical outcome. Logistic regression also deals with one or more or continuous variables predictors used (Chao-Ying Joanne Peng).
An ensemble classifier (Mohamed Shakeel et al.) contains a set of trained individual classifiers; it may be neural networks or decision tress, these predictions were combined based on the classifying system. The method for producing ensemble tree the system concentrates with bagging and boosting. For combining more than one classifier, this system is effectively used to get high accuracy. This bagging is more accurate in the ensemble method compare to boosting ensembles
Support vector machine
SVM Vikramaditya Jakkula et al, classifier is used to analyse data that is regularly performed during the execution process. In this, the regions are mapped together with the help of points in the system. This system is contributed more on the image segmentation process. From this method, accuracy rate and performance can be measured.
This classifier is branch of Bayes theorem (T M. Mitchell et al); it is called as a Naïve Bayes classifier with inter-strong relationship-based features. In this Naive Bayes, each feature problem is models around independent of the other system. The system is trained by various numbers of classification rules-based approach to find the statistics.
k-NN (Gongde Guo et al) is based on learning process, in this method, it allows all the data for training in this classification system. It is one of the lazy systems for learning method. From this, the whole training data can be found out the best one for improving their classification accuracy.

To compute the level of performance of the system, the classifier of the performance matrix is calculated. These parameter measures accuracy, sensitivity, specificity are calculated using this below formula,
(TP-True Positive, TN-True Negative FP-False Positive, FN-False Negative)
| Results and Discussion|| |
The experimental performance of the proposed work deals with tumor identification method. In these 100 images are used to classify the stages, which are begin and malignant stage of the tumor (the images obtained from Kaggle dataset). In view of this segmentation process, tumor area detected with the help of DWT and PCA techniques and the performance also calculated. Extraction of various feature is listed below in [Table 1]. In consonance with feature, values of all images to be benign or malignant are displayed.

In this proposed work to classify the tumor images, classification learner is used. With help of MATLAB features are extracted based on DWT (GLCM) and PCA techniques described in the kernel function which are linear, radial bias, quadratic, polygonal accuracy. In each stage of testing and training, dataset is used in the function to get high accuracy.
Feature extraction using discrete wavelet transform (GLCM) and principle component analysis
When the brain tumor image is loaded as input in the feature extraction, the following process is done to detect the tumor which is benign or malignant.
- Brain tumor image is loaded as input
- A segmented image is displayed, with 13 features extracted.
- The type of tumor is diagnosed (benign or malignant)
- Accuracy of RBF, polygonal, linear, and quadric is calculated.
The [Table 2] shows, comparison of Confusion Matrix in this classification learner. The listed confusion matrix TP (True Positive), FN (False Positive), PP (Positive Predictive Values), FDR (False Discovery Rates) can identify the classification rate of the classifier as Specificity, Sensitivity, and Accuracy. The output show in [Figure 5], [Figure 6], and [Figure 7].
The accuracy of categorization is compared in the table below; five different classifications are tested for high accuracy. Compare to the entire classification method ensemble bagged tree gives more accuracy because set of classification is already in build to reach maximum accuracy. With help of bagged tree, 99% accuracy is achieved.
| Conclusion|| |
To a great extent, lot of investigation method is accessible in brain tumor research. From this, everyone is trying to get good accuracy to extract location of the tumor. In such a manner, the proposed work given a 99% accuracy shown in [Figure 8] to detect which is benign or malignant. The whole approach is carried out DWT and PCA (GLCM) techniques along with classification learner algorithm. Since the classification learner strategy aids multiple classifiers in detecting tumours in MR images with great accuracy. In the future, the outcome may be improved to identify the age and various grade levels by adopting more incomparable classifier.
